The first of many events to come in 2011, kicked off laat week, inside the largest, most abundant furniture retailer, Art Van Furniture, along with the leading Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle magazine, STYLELINE.  Hundreds of metro Detroit Fashion enthusiasts, and Friends, came to support the 8 featured designers who I was so proud to be featured with. 

The evening was dripping in Chardonnay and Champagne, along with some of the finest catering, which to me as a Greek Orthodox girl fasting for Holy Week, I was unable to indulge in.  However, the evening was rich.  In flavor, in style, in variety. All the designers, brought some amazing pieces to showcase, and we were even delighted to get a moment to hug and chat with our most fave lady representing the best of Michigan, Miss Michigan 2011 Channing Pierce

Some of my favs friends, teachers, fashion ulumni, and peers in Detroit Fashion.  Mr. & Mrs. Art Van themselves came and shook my hand, as well as offer a compliment on my designs. (BTW: Mrs. Art Van was delightfully dresses in a crochet sheath dress, which looked amazing on her). 

Being apart of such an extravagant event dedicated to highlighting, supporting, and showcasing Fashion & Design, wherever it may be in your life, home or office. 

We were all winners that evening.  We were all apart of a wonderful event, that brought so many wonderful people together.  Especially the fabulous,  Karen Buscemi, of Editor of Styleline Magazine, Author of "I do, Part Two", and who also has her own super fab blog dedicated to the look of Flatwear Shoes, Casual Shoesday. She is such a supporter of the local talent around Detroit, and we are so grateful to have here an her vision leading the way for one of Metro Detroit highest circulated Magazines. 
There was a little extra tied in to this fabulous night.  Amongst seeing some Detroit based Fashion at its finest, those in attendance had the opportunity to vote on which designer collection was their favorite of the night. My friend, and fellow Detroit Designer, Kelly Sager, of Kelly Lynne  was the lucky winner of a $2,000 Art Van Gift Card that will allow her to upgrade her studio for season's to come.  I am thrilled that Kelly won, she is a delight of a gal, and her work is as brilliant, as she is talented.  Congrats girl! So happy for you!
